And sew to begin…

 

…  some pics of a romantic lace wedding dress I designed and made last summer that I was particularly happy with.

It was vintage in feel if not strictly adhering to a particular decade.

Top layer was french lace hand pieced together so as to appear seamless. Under layer was a heavy silk crepe lined in a light weight silk satin and all was supported by a built in cotton tulle corselet. The 3 metre silk tulle veil was edged with a tiny zigzag stitch and had 36 lace flowers hand appliqued on near the front and back edges. All in all  200 hour make.

A happy ending for my part, only the beginning of the story on theirs.

the inside matters-cotton tulle corselet , lightly boned which supports the whole dress..

 

 

Appliqued cut out lace flowers with a tiny glass bead in the centres which caught the light just enough.
